Dear Lord, does this man not have any hobbies?
Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is strongly considering a political comeback in 2016 now that a new state Supreme Court ruling nearly guarantees that a swing congressional seat will be redrawn to rope in his home along with a gaggle of Democrats, sources tell POLITICO.
Via @rumpfshaker. Mind you, we’re all just assuming that Charlie Crist will run as a Democrat, and not as a Green, or a Reform, or a Libertarian… OK, if it’s going to be one of those three it will have to be as a Libertarian, precisely because the idea of Crist running as a libertarian boggles the mind. The point is – well, I guess the point is: dear Lord, does this man not have any hobbies? And I am being nice; the alternative possibility is that Charlie Crist has some sort of compulsive disorder* that requires him to be constantly running for office.
*This being differentiated from the usual politician’s ego in that the sufferer probably isn’t enjoying the procedure very much. And I can’t imagine Crist enjoyed the experience of losing two statewide races (three, if you count that Senate primary) in a row.
